Review & Giveaway ~ Consume Me


 Paige Matthews
 Consume Me
 Devoured Club Series #2

  ~ Blurb ~  

Emma O'Connor's interest in bondage and submission has led her to the training program at Devoured. With past sexual experiences less than par, Emma wants nothing more than to submit to a Master. With her need for pleasure and her desire to please, Emma finds herself exploring the desires that have remained subdued; although unsure if she could make a good submissive.

 Marcus, the Dom in charge of the training program at Devoured, is more than interested in the feisty submissive. When Emma walks in for her interview, Marcus knows he's met his match. Consumed by nothing but thoughts of her, Marcus begins to doubt his ability to stay in control and his previous stance on collaring a submissive. Marcus finds himself unsure of his feelings for Emma, and his responsibility to the other trainees.

 When a threat surfaces against Emma and her past comes back to haunt her, Marcus must admit his feelings for her in order to protect her, or risk losing her forever.

 Join Marcus, Emma, and the rest of the Devoured Club Doms and Subs in the second installment of the Devoured Club Series. 

~ Review ~  

Wow, I'm not sure a book based on BDSM has ever made me feel emotionally connected to the characters, but somehow this author managed it. From the very start, I could tell Consume Me was different, and was more about the feelings and personalities than the BDSM, though that obviously still plays a huge part. I was soon drawn into their world, and loved seeing Emma and Marcus's feelings develop as they got to know each other. The chemistry couldn't be denied, but both have issues from their pasts that made for an interesting read. There's no denying it's a hot read, but with a softer side that made me more intrigued to keep reading. I wanted to see how it was all going to work out, though I've always been open minded and found myself learning a few things at the same time.

Until I was writing this review I didn't even realise this book was part of a series but now I do, I'll be going back to read Devour Me.

~ Author Bio ~ 

I am Paige Matthews. I have been writing and reading since I was able to pick up a pen and read a book. I can't even begin to list the amounts of book that I've devoured over the course of my life; from the Babysitter's Club to R.L.Stein to the classics and the novels of my degrees. Recently, I have been focusing both my writings and my readings in erotica, BDSM and contemporary romance. And no, Fifty Shades of Grey did not get me on the BDSM bandwagon. If anything it opened the idea up more to me, but alas I have my own opinions on the trilogy.

I am trying to focus my writings on the emotional aspects of the erotic world, the emotional bondage of BDSM. I am interested in what makes people want to be dominant or submissive, the connection, etc. But I do like to read about a good flogging and bondage story too, the smuttier the better. :)

I live in New England with a wonderful family that keeps me busy when I am not at my day job or writing. I hope you enjoy your stay.
